Sony Alpha a7 II Review

 

The Sony Alpha a7 II is an image-stabilized full frame mirrorless camera, the fourth release in Sony's a7 lineup and the follow up the original a7. It uses the same 24-megapixel sensor as its predecessor, and the same Bionz X processor as the rest of...

Sony A7: A solid full-frame at a reasonable price

 

This compact interchangeable-lens model is a great step-up from APS-C models, as long as you don't demand action-shooting performance.

, aka the A7, delivers excellent photo and video quality in a well-designed camera that's enjoyable to shoot with.

The long startup time and short battery life disappoint.

Sony Alpha ILCE-7 (A7) is a great alternative to similarly priced entry-level full-frame dSLRs, as long as you don't need speedy continuous shooting.

Sony Alpha A7 body only

 

Note: the design and feature set for the A7 is identical to the A7R, so much of my discussion of the camera is, well, also identical.

Sony Alpha 7 Review

 

If there's one thing that you can say about Sony's digital camera business, it's that they've experimented with many different concepts. From SLRs with dual autofocus systems and Translucent Mirror Technology to its NEX mirrorless line-up, Sony has...

Small and well-priced full-frame body Very good image quality when shooting Raw Solid build quality Compatible with a huge range of legacy 35mm camera lenses with no field-of-view crop Large, high resolution electronic viewfinder Tilting LCD offers...

JPEG quality disappointing compared to peers – crude sharpening, over-aggressive processing and occasional posterization Autofocus can be hesitant, especially in low light; AF improves when assist lamp is turned off Auto ISO tends to keep shutter speed...

The digital photography world was set ablaze when Sony announced its Alpha 7 and 7R full-frame mirrorless cameras. It's the smallest and least expensive full-frame digital camera with interchangeable lenses, and one that supports nearly every 35mm lens...

Sony Alpha A7 and A7R review

 

Every once in a while, a product comes along that changes the dynamic of an entire industry. The iPhone did it in 2007, the Mustang did it in 1964, and Converse did it with the All Star sneaker way...

Great image quality ; Compact size ; Solid build ; Lots of controls and buttons

Limited lens choices ; Loud shutter ; Poor battery life ; Slow autofocus

Sony Alpha 7

 

The Sony Alpha 7 is a fast-shooting, full-frame mirrorless camera that's capable of capturing some impressive images, but overall, we prefer its sibling, the 7R.

Full-frame image sensor. 5fps burst shooting. Snappy autofocus. Impressive high ISO performance. Sharp, tilting rear LCD. Focus peaking. Excellent OLED EVF. Great control layout. Compact, dust and moisture-resistant body. Vertical shooting grip...

Sensor design includes OLPF. No PC sync socket. No built-in flash. External battery charger not included. Native lens library is in its infancy.

The LCD is hinged so it can tilt up or down, but it's not a vari-angle display like the one found on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3, nor does it support touch input. It's 3 inches in size and packs 921k-dot resolution into that space, which is...

Sony A7 Review

 

The Sony A7 is the world's first 35mm full-frame compact system camera (along with the A7R that was launched at the same time). The Sony A7 has a 24.3 megapixel full-frame sensor with an optical low-pass filter, a Sony E bayonet mount, a new range of...

After shooting with both the A7 and the A7R side-by-side, we'd be hard-pushed to choose between them, as both are remarkable cameras in their own right. On paper at least the A7 should offer faster auto-focusing and less noise at high ISOs than the...
